Wicher 500, Savina68k, TF530, other TF, 68030TK, etc.
Why the developers do not join forces to make ONE product?
I spend my day working with other people and doing what they want. If you want that then I am for hire when my current contract ends. But my day rate would make your eyes water.

Fun and creative control.

Quote:
Everybody wins (developers, buyers), if a big development is ready instead of many little individual developments. Less development work. Look Vampire 500.
Wicher 500.....TF530, etc. sold 40-60 pieces/year? Soldering 1 card/week at home? ACA 500 and ACA500plus sold min. 300-500 pieces/year.[/FONT]
The Amiga developments are dispersed on the internet. The informations are not collected onto 1 place (central Amiga website).
The TF530 card better, cheaper, than ACA500plus + ACA1233, but cannot be reached.
I put 1000+ hours into designing stuff, creating videos and debugging for free. I then give the designs out for anyone to build. I sell the bare boards to people at almost cost to keep the prices down and i spend my evening shipping them to people who then hurl abuse at me when they screw up the solder. What more do you want from me?

I also work with anyone who is polite to figure out their issues on their board or any other electronics issue. I worked alot with Chucky on DiagROM for example.

I will repeat this one more time.. I AM NOT YOUR SLAVE.. I DO NOT NEED OR WANT YOUR MONEY. I WILL NOT BE BULLIED INTO DOING WHAT YOU WANT.

Well sure it would be good to have ONE product. but there are many ideas. and organizing this would take the fun out of things and stuff would simply. just. die.

then it suddenly gets comercial..

well as the TF530 is open. "anyone" can solder one. it is more than 40-60 for sure.



this sounds that you DEMAND people do what you like.
there are opensource stuff out there. grab files. so. or ask someone politly that can do. but never EVER demand.

I myself do my stuff for ME! and ME only. I do release most stuff. but from my stuff remember: I do what I think I need.
sure I want 060 etc and this wil require a group of people.
but in the end it is as I want. not what anyone else wants.

(sure. I might maybe need to cut some ideas to get some people as a team to some kind of common goal)


anyway the A3640, A3660 and now ReAmiga 1200 is only based on the fact: I want/need it

amiga2000 can not be for real. Im absolutly sure that no one can be so ignorant in real life. He is only here to turn up some dust and to pick a fight.

This is like living next door to the crazy cat lady!
